The Missing Picture Review

Image for The Missing Picture

French naturalised Cambodian Rithy Panh uses a mix of documentary techniques and claymation to look at the agonies visited on his homeland by the Khmer Rouge.


Rithy Panh recalls life in a Kampuchean re-education camp in this deeply affecting mix of monochrome archival footage and charmingly stylised animation. Raising fascinating questions about remembrance and representation, this is a work of artistic audacity and devastating power.

Powerful and mesmerising, this offers an fresh approach to a tough topic.
